but you can take action today. go to for your free joint profile so you can better talk to your rheumatologist about protecting your joints. you it -- >>stuart: the president says it is time to focus on other issues besides his birth. how about where he is drilling? this is "your world," gas supplies, down, nine straight races and prices up 36 straight days. now, the president says it is time to pump more oil. in saudi arabia. and now, jim wants it know why not here, jim is the president of the offshore marine service association. jim, i am sure you are tearing your hair out. but, can you answer the question, why doesn't the president want to drill here? >>guest: i cannot answer that question. what i do is look what this
4:01 pm
administration does. not what it says. in this case, at every turn, they have used their regulatory authority to shut down this industry. they have done it in a manner that is costing us jobs, raised the price of fuel and made us more dependent on foreign oil. i can not explain it. >>stuart: according to the "wall street journal" seven deep water rigs have left the gulf and some have gone to brazil. are you telling me we have shut down much of the drilling in the gulf of mexico? >>guest: this administration has created permanent damage to our ability to produce energy domestically in the gulf of mexico. it's true that the president went to brazil to say he wanted to be first in line as a custom for brazilian oil. brazil is using technology that was based in the united states. we have had not only rigs leave
4:02 pm
the gulf of mexico, but we have had offshore supply vessels that were built in the last 10 years to service deep water drilling. that technology is being exported to countries because this administration has shut down an industry and put hundreds of thousands of jobs in generality. -- jeopardy. further further you must have some idea, speculate, why does the president do this? let me answer my own question, did you think that the president is so tied to the environmentalists who hate oil and do not like drilling at all, is that it? >>guest: i think he is committed to creating a command-and-control economy that drives the price of fuel to the point where his alternatives are more attractive in the marketplace. the problem with that approach it ignores we are in a global economy and others take up the
4:03 pm
slack where we become unproductive, and jobs, productivity, and hour funds are transferred overseas as a result of this administration's energy policy. further further everyone is feeling the pain at $4 gas painful to to to -- to everyone, take away the tax breaks the oil companies get, drill over there, and told two audiences get out there and buy a new fuel efficient car. your response to that? >>guest: i have seen those clips. of the recommendations to go out and buy automobiles that did not exist or they cannot afford. that is not a solution. the solution is to produce domestic energy here and now and lift the moratorium on drilling permits in the gulf of mexico. >>stuart: let me show you the president talking about the level of oil production now, in the united states.
4:04 pm
>> the u.s. oil production was the highest level last year, than ever. you it constitute -- >>stuart: is that correct? >>guest: it is correct but it is like a father taking credit for a record year and saying next year will be better but does not put a crop in the ground. you cannot keep production up without exploring. >>stuart: thank you for joining us, jim. we appreciate it. the president also calling to end tax breaks for oil companies and invest the money in his green energy projects. to a democrat, yes, a democrat telling the president he is putting thousands of jobs on the line. congressman, you are a democrat, you seem to oppose the president on this, are you telling me that he can take the tax breaks away, your state, oklahoma, loses jobs, are you saying that?
4:05 pm
>>guest: we lose thousands of jobs in oklahoma and texas and louisiana and arkansas and pennsylvania, new york, west virginia, not just traditional oil and gas producing states and the tax breaks do not go to the major oil companies, they go to small independent companies like we have in oklahoma. did you know a vast majority of the production in the united states comes from small independent oil and gas companies in and the new rigs that are drilling right now in the united states, they are not exon mobiles of the world but the chesapeakes and smaller companies that are based in oklahoma that are employing a lot blue-collar jobs. the president needs to understand that. >> those smaller oil companies, the drillers, don't they get any of the tax breaks? you have a big oil company reporting billions and billions
4:06 pm
in profits this week, literally, and a lot of petroleum are saying you can afford $4 billion give away in the tax breaks and you have a cushion of huge profits, surely you can absorb the tax break loss and keep drilling. >>guest: there are two things, the depletion allowance, the major oil companies are barred from using that tax incentive. they cannot do it. it is against the law. that is something the president has been misleading the public on. second, in drilling costs, basically an incentive to drill in the united states. if you take that away 30 percent to 40 percent of the drilling right now in the united states will go away and that number you talked about that we have more production, that is because of places like the shale, and in oklahoma, going to places like north dakota and producing oil and gas and that is in spite of
4:07 pm
the president's policies. >>stuart: what can you do? you are a blue dog democrat in oklahoma, do you have enough colleagues in the house of representatives to stop this? >>guest: good people from louisiana, mississippi, lost because the president has moved too far to the west on the energy policy. he has to come to the middle to win the next election he has to win over independents. he may write off oklahoma. i don't know if he has been to oklahoma since the last election but he should be in places like the gulf coast because people are losing their jobs each day because of this administration's policies. again, these are not just republicans, and not just c.e.o.'s of major companies, these are democrats, blue-collar workers in places like louisiana, alabama, mississippi and up into pennsylvania and new
4:08 pm
york. >>stuart: congressman, thank you, a democrat from oklahoma. >> coming up ... rug -- remember this woman? if you listen to the mainstream media you will think she is a concerned constituent, well, think again, coming up tonight at 6:00 p.m. but the president calling the birth certificate issue a decision traction to the nation or a distraction to him. and for the land of big ben, no, no, no, this one, giving the big press conference, the first time a fed chief is letting the world

4:12 pm
>> today i am very proud of myself. because i have accomplished something that no one else has been able to accomplish. >>stuart: the donald commenting on the birth certificate, president obama releasing a detailed version saying we need to get past distractions. but my guest says it is the dismissing attitude that made this a distraction in the first place and our fox news contributor is us with saying we have seen this before. how so? >>guest: we see this with bigger issues like the b.p. oil spill, it took him weeks to respond to that.
4:13 pm
it took him weeks to respond when a man's underwear almost blew up on an airplane on serious, serious issues to the nation he dilly dalid and came to the podium. what took so long? >>stuart: do you think she distant, somewhat cold and he missed the significance and importance, to him it is not important but to the public it became an important issue? did he dismiss that? >>guest: i cannot blame him for dismissing it initially, he is thinking, this is nuts. i was born in hawaii, why a big deal. the clinton camp brought it up originally. but for donald trump to get the president of the united states to commit the office to come up with a huge gaffe. >>stuart: you think it is a gaffe?
4:14 pm
>> absolutely. >> did he deliberately withhold this and then say there was nothing. >> as a former press secretary it should be kept at the staff level because it was his real birth certificate, and let it go and let president obama focus on the important issues. and if they are going to release it, why step on their own story this morning, they had big news at the c.i.a. and the department of defense rearranging staff. huge news. if they wanted to release this she they should have done it friday afternoon or during a royal wedding. >>stuart: let me play a little bit of the announcement from the white house where he is saying, we have to be mice and then calling names. listen to this. >> america's political leaders can come together in a bipartisan way and solve these problems. we always have. but we are not going to be able
4:15 pm
to do it if we are distracted. who are in the going to be able to do it if we vilify each other or we cannot solve our problems if we are distracted by carnival barkers. >>stuart: did he say mr. trump is a carnival barker? that is aggressive stuff? >>guest: and the president should in the comment on. he is showing his thinned skinness that the media and donald trump are getting to him. >>stuart: do you think the president lost this? did donald trump, therefore, win? >>guest: i do, trump won here, he was elevated and he legitimized his place but what he chooses to do going forward is critical. he has to get off the silly stuff talking about the transcript now, saying obama could be a bad student.
4:16 pm
so what? no one thinks the president is dumb. and he better be careful what he wished for, what if he releases his grades and he has straight a's but i think trump going forward has a real platform. he has the attention of all of us. >>stuart: take your win and move on. >>guest: talk about the president's policies not the grades or birth certificate. talk about the grade the american people give him which is according to polling not so good. 70 percent of the country think we are going in a wrong direction. >>stuart: there you have it, thank you. suing boeing. for hiring in a right-to-work state. did the government labor board just go overboard to a guy who used to run it and says you better believe it. plus, two sausage makers, one owns a zeli and the other prints
4:17 pm
the money. what is the connection
4:18 pm
4:19 pm
4:20 pm
>>stuart: boeing getting a bottom line boost because of tax rate cuts, but keeping a close eye on how boeing's fight with the national labor relations board plays out, and they say the new factory in south carolina is illegal and an attack on unions. my guest used to call the shots at the nlrb and does not like what he is seeing today. peter, this looks like, you tell me straight, it looks like directs punishment for boeing for daring to open a factory in south carolina, a right-to-work state. is it?
4:21 pm
>>guest: unfortunately, you can look at it that way. there is in basis for the claim this is retaliation. boeing has every right to open a new plant in south carolina and it could have opened a new plant anywhere, a nonunion plant because some boeing officials say that a reason was to avoid some of the strikes which they experienced in the state of washington, the general counsel claimed that was retaliation against the union employees. >>stuart: you used to run the nlrb. do they have the power to interfere like this? >>guest: well, it has the power to attempt to interfere. it is highly unlikely. >>stuart: i thought they were supposed to be down the middle, granted they are appointed by a democrat or republican president but they are supposed to be middle of the road but it looks
4:22 pm
like they are taking sides. >>guest: the current leadership is of the view that they are to support unionization and make organizing easier but, in fact, their role is to be neutral and consider the legitimate interests of both mass and unions while they protect me rights. >>stuart: we have a picture of a recess appointment by president obama, the man you talking about who clearly favors unions. is the board doing his bidding? >>guest: i think the majority on the board, and becker is one of them, view their row as promoting unionization and they are incorrect, and misguided, and that is a problem for the board. because it undermines the board's credibility. >>stuart: could we so this again if another corporation moves a manufacturing plant order of, say, illinois, or", or any other closed shop union
4:23 pm
states and goes to a right-to-work state? will we see this again? >>guest: you could but it would not have to be a right-to-work state, if the union employer tried to expand production into any other state and it was a nonunion plant it opened the board could claim it is retaliation. but, based on this complaint they could claim that if it was a union plant, but a different union, and it was done because the employer felt it would have a better or different relationship, it could claim it was retaliation so there is no limit to this but it makes no sense. >>stuart: but is it possible at the end of the day boeing will not be allowed to open that plant in south carolina? >>guest: i do not believe so. >>stuart: could they pay a fine and open it? >>guest: no, my understanding is boeing is proceeding with plan in south carolina and it guess to a hearing now, and goes to the board and if the board
4:24 pm
were to agree with the counsel more likely than not, and i am highly confident a circuit court would disagree because it is a legitimate business objective to seek to avoid work stoppage. >>stuart: you ran the board and i am sure you are familiar with them going after the state of arizona and south dakota because they patted referendums enforcing the closed secret ballot for unionization. what do you make of that? >>guest: well, the nlrb does not have authority to institute litigation so i am surprised they did that. generally speaking they wait for a third party and it will follow-up with a brief. and i question the timing of this because there is no case or controversy. my understanding with regard to the state amendments is that they favor the secret ballot election. they do not prohibit voluntary wreck inflation by hardship.
4:25 pm
>>stuart: is it overboard to say this looks like support for the unions come what may from the obama administration using the nlrb? >>guest: those are your words but i would not disagree. >>stuart: are you a diplomat? would you use those words. >>guest: among friends i may. >>stuart: thank you, peter, you are a diplomat. when you think of sausage do you think about how it is made? not pretty. maybe a lesson for the fed head today? maybe? overall value of any brand. ♪ and j.d. power and associates ranks lexus highest in customer satisfaction.

4:41 pm
at, are those two, in fact, being defensive because they see the president somewhat on the defensive going into the 2012 elections and some of the policies are not that successful so you play the race cards defend, and close off debate. maybe that is the policy here. >>guest: that is right. and we all know msnbc and mainstream media were accomplices in giving president obama a pass as a candidate. if you looked at, and it had to do was there was white guilt in the liberal journalism circles because we had the potentially first african-american president and he got a pass. if i had a white candidate with the same associations, and a pastor who said g.d. america from the pulpit, a white person would not have been elected.
